Pentagon Investigator Resigning

Suspected of blocking investigations of senior Bush officials, the Defense Department's inspector general, Joseph Schmitz, announces his intention to resign on Sept. 9. But don't worry about Schmitz, he's got a job lined up with a defense contractor.

Intro's highlights:

The resignation comes after Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) sent Schmitz several letters this summer informing him that he was the focus of a congressional inquiry into whether he had blocked two criminal investigations last year. Grassley, chairman of the Finance Committee, accused Schmitz of fabricating an official Pentagon news release, planning an expensive junket to Germany and hiding information from Congress. Schmitz is the senior Pentagon official charged with investigating waste, fraud and abuse.
